Ivymount Road SE27 is due to be closed to traffic for 6 weeks until just before Christmas so Thames Water can replace the water mains. See letter to residents here.
Later this month works will also start on new water mains under Royal Circus road which will be reduced to one lane of traffic. The 315 bus will continue to use Canterbury Grove and York Hill. In the new year 2022 Thames Water will close Pyrmont Grove for about 4 weeks. Thames Water hope to finish their water mains replacement project in the streets around Royal Circus by March 2022!

Thames Water have a new infrastructure project for the SE27 streets around Royal Circus – between Broxholm Road and Canterbury Grove.
Between mid-January 2021 and June 2021 Thames Water want to replace 1.7miles of 100 year old cast iron water mains in these streets: Broxholm Road, Cambrian Close, part of Canterbury Grove, Chartham Grove, Egremont Road, Glennie Road, Ivymount Road, part of Lansdowne Hill, Portal Close, Pyrmont Grove, Royal Circus, Waldeck Grove and part of York Hill.
The plan is to carry out works one street at a time. Traffic will be managed using traffic lights to close one lane in each road in turn. The 315 bus service should not be disrupted.
Look out for a letter addressed to affected residents from Thames Water early in January – just as soon as details of this important infrastructure project are finalised.
For information on the Norwood Road water mains replacement project, completed in summer 2020, see our previous post 24/7/20.
